Soccer is a huge sport in countries all around the world (for the uninformed, they call it football) except for in the United States. However, that might change soon as Diplo — along with a group of investors — just bought a stake for Arizona United, a soccer team based in Phoenix. The super-producer shares in a statement:

I see soccer the same way I see music, as a connective tissue linking the world’s cultures.”
